Just a tip: when identifying the area, look at the vegetation (bush type) and soil. Also hills, anthills and/or even animals.

Sorry again, but it will exclude a 'southie'. Will get there next time.

Vegetation = Mopane bushes :thumbs_up:

S56 Mphongolo road within a short distance of the beginning near the junction with the H1-7 , travelling northwards .

Edit :
This is a tough one not so sure now - could be S135 northern bank of Shingwedzi river , starting at the lowlevel bridge opposite the camp .
Or
S52 on northern bank of Shingwedzi - area close to the junction with where the Redrocks loop crosses the river .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
